"The Spirit Starts" was written and illustrated by an nine-year-old girl in Zurich, Switzerland.


Kids Stories is a collection of nine animated stories written and illustrated by children from around the world – the stories have been animated so that they ‘come alive’. Combined with viewing the videos and/or reading the accompanying picture-book, the purpose of the activities is to support the language arts with creative writing and artistic expression, promote a sharing of ideas and perspectives, and develop an awareness of the wider world.

The objectives of this activity are:

1. To introduce children to stories written and illustrated by other children in different parts of the world.

2. To give students an opportunity to relate to other young authors and illustrators.

3. To create a geographic awareness about children in other parts of the world.

4. To motivate and inspire children to write, illustrate, and share their own stories.

Contents - printable activities:

• Kids Stories Book.
• Story specific questions.
• Kids and self-portraits.
• International kids and maps.
• Young Authors and Illustrators.
